    Thirty-nine Palestinian civilians, including 11 children and a woman, were shot and injured by Israeli occupation forces’ (IOF) fire against peaceful protestors at the 86th Great March of Return (GMR) in eastern Gaza Strip, this Friday, 27 December 2019.

    Despite of general calmness of protests in most of the areas and the decrease in numbers of participants due to the cold and rainy weather, IOF continued the use of excessive force against peaceful protestors, as 5 civilians, from eastern Rafah, were shot with live bullets; one of them was deemed in serious condition. Moreover, IOF targeted protests with rubber bullets and tear gas canisters, mainly targeting their upper bodies and heads. As a result, many civilians were injured, including a young man who was shot with a rubber bullet in his right eye.

    The Supreme National Authority of GMR called for today’s protests under the slogan “Martyrs’ Blood Draws the Freedom Path” on the anniversary of the 2018 Israeli aggression against the Gaza Strip, which continued for 23 days, and resulted in hundreds of killings and injuries. (...)

    https://www.middleeastmonitor.com/20191227-gaza-halts-great-march-of-return-for-three-months

    Gaza’s weekly March of Return protests have been suspended for a period of three months, organisers the Commission of the Great March of Return and Breaking the Siege of Gaza have announced.

    While a protest is being held today – under the banner “the blood of the martyrs draws the path to freedom” – no others will take place for a period of three months until the second year anniversary of the start of the demonstrations on 30 March 2017.

    The committee added that the protests are expected to resume on a monthly basis starting April, as opposed to taking place weekly as they have previously.

    “The decision was made following rounds of dialogues and debates that have been going on for several weeks,” the commission said in a statement.

    The Great March of Return demonstrations began along the fence between the Gaza Strip and Israel to oppose the Israeli occupation by calling for the right of Palestinians to return to homes from which they were forced out to make way for the creation of the state of Israel.

    The Committee of the Great Return March opened a park east of Gaza city in an effort to encourage residents to use the area near the Gaza fence.

    The park, located near the fence between Gaza and Israel, has been set up in the area which has been deemed “unliveable” as a result of Israeli violence in the area. Called the “Return Park”, the area includes a playground for children. Ibrahim Musallam, media coordinator for the committee, said: “The occupation kills life in the buffer zones, so we shall revive these lands by encouraging people to visit without fear of being killed. The park is over 700 metres away from the fence.”

    “This place was used for waste collections but from now on it will be a place of joy. We are willing to revive all the border areas from Rafah to Beit Hanoun in order to benefit from these large spaces,” he added. (...)

      Les parents d’Ali al-Ashqar sont convaincus qu’Israël a empêché les médecins d’arriver jusqu’à leur fils pour le soigner.

      Ali al-Ashqar venait de lancer une pierre quand on lui a tiré dessus. Le jeune homme de 17 ans s’est immédiatement effondré sur le sol.

      Nabil Masoud se tenait à proximité. Avec deux secouristes, il s’est précipité pour essayer d’aider Ali.

      « Mais le tireur d’élite israélien a commencé à tirer sur quiconque s’approchait de l’enfant », a déclaré Masoud. « Pendant environ 17 minutes, personne n’a pu parvenir jusque Ali. Il était clair que le soldat israélien voulait que l’enfant se vide de son sang et meurt. Et c’est ce qui s’est réellement passé. »

      Finalement, les secouristes ont pu parvenir jusqu’à Ali. Mais c’était trop tard.
